"Young Poets Write What They Know" William Reed Dun Roy, Poet Of The Plains, Carrie Shipers

Great Plains Quarterly

In a column for the Lincoln Courier, a newspaper that actively covered the city's political and artistic scenes in the mid-1890s, William Reed Dunroy writes, "Young poets write what they know; what life has taught them." If his own poetry and imaginative prose are any indication, what Dunroy himself knew best, and cared about most deeply, is the Great Plains region-its weather, landscape, and the lives of its people.

Intimate Australia: Body/Landscape Journals & The Paradox Of Belonging, Lisa Slater Jan 2007

Intimate Australia: Body/Landscape Journals & The Paradox Of Belonging, Lisa Slater

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)
